Cándida
Cándida is a 48 year old vendor, married to 51 year old Dionisio who works as a bricklayer and with whom she has 5 children: 27 year old Jose who works in brick work with his father, 25 year old Nancy who is a school teacher, 24 year old Juana who is working in Spain, 19 year old Enrique and 12 year old Juan who is in 6th grade of primary school.

She began her business in 2006. With great effort and help from the entire family, she was able to be successful and today has a well-stocked convenience store.

She is seeking a loan to buy construction materials for a new commercial room because the place where she currently has her business is too small for her business. She hopes to be able to finish her new locale and increase her merchandise and subsequently her sales, thereby increasing her income for her and her family’s well being.
